Home security system in Omaha

Omaha skyline

In the largest city of The Good Life State, it’s easy to forget that property crime can occur at any time. However, 86 percent of the crimes committed in Omaha are property crimes, including theft and burglary. The theft rate is one and a half times higher than the national average, and the burglary rate is near the national average, according to NeighborhoodScout.com.

Omaha’s overall crime index rating is eight out of 100, with 100 being the safest. Like most metropolitan areas, not all Omaha neighborhoods expose you to the same risk. But property crime occurs even in the safest neighborhoods. Getting a home security system in Omaha can minimize your risk and protect you from the most dangerous and damaging break-ins.

Registration and fees for home alarm systems in Omaha

No permit is required to install a home security system in Omaha, but the alarm does need to be registered annually with the city as part of the Intrusion Alarm Reduction Program. The program is designed to reduce unnecessary calls to the Douglas County 911 Center and assist the Omaha Police Department (OPD) when responding to actual threats.

The cost of alarm registration and annual renewal is $25. Registration fees offset the police dispatch cost for false alarms, and registering your alarm ensures OPD responds to an alert.

You will be fined if you have more than one false alarm per year. Homeowners in Omaha must pay at least $100 for every false alarm after the first. Those in Papillion, La Vista and Bellevue also face significant fines for false alarms.

False alarm fines for Omaha, Papillion, La Vista and Bellevue:

Per year Omaha Papillion La Vista Bellevue
Home alarm registration $25 $15 $25 $25
1st false alarm $0 $0 $0 $0
2nd false alarm $100 $50 $0 $100
3rd false alarm $100 $50 $100 $250
4th false alarm $250 $50 $250 $250
5th false alarm $250 $50 $250 $250
6th false alarm $250 $100 $250 $250

Professional vs DIY installation for home security in Omaha

Most false alarms are caused by improper installation. When installing your home security system, you can choose DIY home security or have a professional install the system. Some users like installing the system themselves, whereas others want the security of having a professional do it.

The best installation method may also depend on when your house was built. If you live in a home with older wiring or historical value — most prominent in east Omaha neighborhoods such as Dundee and Field Club — a less invasive, DIY security system may be right for you. With wireless security cameras and easily mountable devices, these DIY alarm systems don’t damage your walls.

Newer homes in west Omaha, Papillion and La Vista may be more suitable for professional installation, since the wiring is easier to navigate for technicians. Note that some companies require professional installation, while others only offer DIY systems.

Omaha home security features and options

Ultimately, when choosing a home security system in Omaha, it comes down to what features are important and useful to you and which company can best meet your security needs.

Door and window sensors, alarms and a control panel connected to a 24-hour monitoring service are essential features in a home security system. Most companies offer wireless plans, so you won’t need a landline connection.

Some plans also include full-color HD video camera surveillance, the ability to communicate with your home automation products, such as smart lighting or thermostats, and a smartphone app that allows for remote monitoring from anywhere in the world.
